Users have reportedly had their propery impounded.

A Coinhive user who claims to be under investigation told news.Bitcoin.com, emphasizing that the police made arrests based solely on their opinion with no clarity of the law.

He elaborated, “People currently being investigated or arrested are primarily those who began using Coinhive since last September” and some have already stopped using the program long before the police started the investigations. “The possibility of Coinhive being a crime wasn’t pointed out until a Nikkei article of Dec 10,” he said.
